From 1983 to 1985, Cameron Taylor served as a Duty Clerk at 10 Downing Street, witnessing at first hand Margaret Thatcher's remarkable premiership.

This was a time of profound change including a bitter dispute with the mineworkers union and seismic shifts in international relations. In his affectionate and sometimes funny recollections, Cameron encounters a Prime Minister in her nightdress, describes being held at gunpoint in Moscow and at lance-point in Cairo, and shares the story of a surprising conversation with the late King Hussein bin Talal of Jordan.

In October 1984 he was on duty during the weekend immediately following the Brighton bomb explosion and had the privilege of greeting the Prime Minister and Mr Thatcher on their safe return to Downing Street - 'Welcome home, Prime Minister.'
